Welcome to St Bride's

During the interregnum we are pleased to welcome Bill Wilson.

Ordained in Manchester, Bill now lives in Brighton with his wife Anne. He retired in 2010 after 17 years at St James, Paddington during which time he also served as Area Dean of Westminster and a member of the Diocesan Advisory Comittee for the care of Churches.

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael's Cornhill. Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and 'church-crawling'.

'God has set his seal upon us.' (2 Corinthians 1: 22)

In the ancient world all documents were sealed. Sealing wax was used to authenticate the document and prove ownership. Paul uses the image to speak about the way in which God has given us a pledge or guarantee that we belong to him. His love is absolute and unchanging. But in our turn we must become salt and light in the world by the way we live our lives.

Lord God, you are steadfast and unchanging and you have marked us as your sons and daughters. Keep us humbly grateful, and help us to be light and salt in the world. Amen.
